I've got the image ok on the cape and updated the arduino code.
I did some good diagnostics of my setup with some different wall wart style power adaptors. A 12V and also a 24V. I think I will need to reprogram my esc's as the down and ctrl keys werent doing anything but other than that everything was going ok.
All of a sudden my 24V power adaptor seemed unhappy and stopped working, which was puzzling. I also noticed one of the caps of a motor got hot enough to melt the glue gun glue a bit.
That should have been warning enough to stop there but I wanted to test the battery setup and so I put 6 of the batteryspace 3.7V li-ion cells in series in the battery tubes. When I plug the molex connector together I noticed a very visible spark within the connector, at the ground wire of the power pin.
I cut off my plug connector thinking it was causing the short but that wasnt it.
The cape and beaglebone seem ok. I can still load the page and the camera by supplying 5V to beaglebone.
Is there something in a motor that blew up then? Other? I'm looking to get a handle on what is going on.
